Once a year, Riggs Partners (the advertising agency I do cool digital things for) has a CreateAthon.
You probably don’t know what that is. It’s okay. I didn’t either until I started working for them. A CreateAthon is a 24-hour no-sleep pro-bono marketing blitz wherein we provide our services (and the services of a few other talented folks around town) to local nonprofits.
What started as a small project at Riggs has become a worldwide movement.
When it came time to order shirts for our recent CreateAthon, I asked for a 3x.
“You’re going to do something cool with this, aren’t you?” asked my coworker.
Well…of course I was.
Beige Beige Beige.
Oh hai fall, I didn’t know it was you!
I am deeply and profoundly excited about our (admittedly slight) change in temperature here in SC. Usually I get a little down as cold weather approaches, but not this year. :) I’m ready for stews, tea and nights curled up with a book by my fireplace.
I even decorated!
Douglas is looking…different…
I’m also excited about a certain 90’s trend that’s making a comeback this year: Fall Florals!
When I saw this frock on my refashion rack, my gears began to turn.
So fall. So floral!
The other day, I asked the following question on the ReFashionista Facebook page:
Decisions are hard.
Over 450 of you were kind enough to weigh in, and the 1970’s beige maternity dress on the left was the winner!
Winner…loser…what’s the difference?
Hi all! I know…I haven’t posted in a while. I’ll explain why later.
For now, let’s just take in a nice, soothing refashion. Doesn’t that sound nice?
When I was asked to volunteer for a friend’s Bierkeller Oktoberfest (you can learn more about Bierkeller Columbia right here), I of course said yes. Delicious Kolsch and an opportunity to help bring something special to Columbia? Heck yeah. When I was asked if I’d like a shirt to refashion, I of course also said yes.
I was given this one:
Do you like my thrifted owlie wall art peeking at you in the background?
I’m super-proud of this swell ottoman I made all by myself!
I <3 Celadon Green!
I’m even prouder that it only cost $29 to make ($7 per wine crate + $1 for 1970’s curtain set + free fabric for stuffing)!
I might even be prouder still that it didn’t require any carpentry skillz whatsoever. If you can sew a pillow, you can make one too! :)
I think it works well with my eclectic (i.e. thrifted) décor!
